post #61 of 63

$50 for Evenflo infant carrier plus $20 for extra base
$75 for Graco Ultra Cargo
$40 for Graco Turbobooster

so $165 total BUT, we have a REALLY nice grandma who bought a $300 Marathon for DS when he turned 1, and a $270 Decathlon for DD when she turned 1. So now the DS uses the Turbobooster (he JUST outgrew his Marathon at 5.5), and DD her Decathlon (she will probably fit in it till she is 7!).

snugride - shower gift (used for DD1 and DS)
evenflo triumph - $120-ish (used for DD1 and DS)
evenflo chase - $90-ish (used for DD1 and DS for periods of time)
Radian 65 x 2 - $375 (got one on sale)
a graco combo seat (can't remember now which one) handed down from a good friend to use as a spare
safeseat - hand-me-down from very good friend after 1 yr of use
turbo booster for DD1 when she outgrows the Radian (or DD2 outgrows the safeseat, whichever happens first) - $40 (sale)
will eventually need one more booster for DS - $40-$50
possibly one for DD2 depending on the shape of DD1's booster (and expiration date) - $40-$50

so that's $675-$725 that will bring 3 kids birth to booster (of course two i didn't pay for, though i probably would've skipped infant seats if i hadn't gotten them free).

if i had to do it over again, still receiving the buckets and the graco combo seat for free, i'd have skipped the Triumph and the Chase and gotten DD1 the Radian 65 when she graduated from the snugride, and then bought one for DS when he graduated from the snugride. doing it that way (again with the buckets and graco combo seat as gifts/hand-me-downs) I would've been able to go birth-booster for all three (with no sales) for $500-$550
